Transfer of registration (change of owner)
The registration transfer fee is a fee that you pay when a car or vehicle is registered under a new owner.
How much does it cost?
How to re-register a vehicle
You re-register a vehicle on the Norwegian Public Roads Administration’s website. Here you can:
- submit the notification of sale
- pay the registration transfer fee
- print out your temporary vehicle registration certificate.
If you need help, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration handles the notification of sale and the re-registration of the vehicle, while the Norwegian Tax Administration handles the calculation and payment of the registration transfer fee.
If you’re not a digital user
If you’re not a digital user, you have to contact the Norwegian Public Roads Administration to get the payment information. After the payment is made, it’ll take 2-3 working days before the re-registration is completed. You’ll receive the vehicle registration document by post.
For car dealers
Autoreg and Autosys are digital services for dealers, used for registration of new and used vehicles.

- Vehicles registered on the same owner for two months or less
- Electric vehicles
- Deleting the vehicle’s co-owner
- Change the vehicle’s registered co-owner to owner
- Re-registration between spouses (re-registration between cohabiting partners does not exempt you from paying the fee)
- Inheritance between parents and children
- This does not apply to advance on inheritance. In such cases, you must submit the notification of sale. Read more about transferring ownership within the family at the Norwegian Public Roads Administration.
In some cases, you must submit an application to the Norwegian Tax Administration about a possible exemption. This applies to the following cases:
- cancellation of purchases
- reorganisation of companies

If the registration transfer fee you paid was too high, you can apply for a refund. You must state the registration number of the vehicle, the KID number you used, and the bank account from which you paid the fee.
It’s a condition that the Norwegian Public Roads Administration has already completed the re-registration. I.e. that you’ve received the vehicle registration document made out in your name.
You can see previous paid registration transfer fees and download a receipt (reconciliation report).
